How To Self-Publish Comics: Not Just Create Them Gets a 5th Edition
Devil’s Due Comics founder Josh Blaylock is offering up over 20 years’ worth of industry secrets in his all-new DIY manual, How To Self-Publish Comics: Not Just Create Them. The 168-page guide — significantly updated for 2019/2020 — is an anomaly in DIY literature, in that it features a successful artist sharing wisdom about everything but the creative.
In lieu of providing instructions on how to write or draw, How To Self-Publish Comics explains how to successfully navigate the industry once you’ve honed those skills. Blaylock bypasses the industry jargon with clear and simple instructions on:
- Building Your Publishing Infrastructure
- Forming Your Creative Team
- Sales & Marketing
- Determining, engaging with, and maintaining your key fan base
- Digital Publishing
How To Self-Publish Comics also includes (and demystifies) purchase orders, invoices, printer quotes, and other must-know components of the publishing process. The book is an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the way the comic book industry works, from concept to shelf.
